The Game Explains Why He Stopped “F*cking With Death Row Records”

Tiffany Brockworth |

The Game was close to signing his life away to Death Row Records back in the day, but says after hanging out with the label for a couple of months, he realized Death Row was not for him.

“I was running around with Suge and Eastwood and my homeboy Sonic for about two months and I figured out this wasn’t the place for me. I remember when they came out with I don’t know if it was XXL or The Source cover where they had Left Eye on there with Suge and Crooked I, Eastwood and I just felt like I should be on there,” he told DJ Vlad.

He continued, “That was the competitive nature of young West Coast n-ggas back then… I just felt like I belonged on records. So I stopped fucking with them and then I started running with Diddy a little bit and then Diddy sort of pushed me over to Dre when Dre was ready to sign me.”

The Game would sign with Aftermath Entertainment instead.
